Enquire About Expedition to Charcot & Peter I Islands with National Geographic by Ponant

When Do You Want To Go?

Enjoy a 15-day itinerary sailing across the Drake Passage to Charcot and Peter I Island, a small volcanic island where very few people have visited. A once-in-a-lifetime expedition with Ponant and National Geographic onboard the brand-new Le Commandant Charcot.

Landing on Peter I Island is like landing on the moon. In fact, fewer people have visited this small volcanic island located in the Bellingshausen Sea, 450km from the Antarctic coastlines, than have set foot on lunar soil! 

This unusual itinerary will also provide an opportunity to approach Charcot Island, thus named by Captain Charcot in memory of this father during its discovery in 1910. On this cruise, you'll enjoy the company of a National Geographic Photographer and an Expert. Be among the few people on earth who have visited these unique islands.

  • A cruise in partnership with National Geographic Expeditions offering enrichment with a National Geographic Photographer and Expert onboard
